Daniel Joseph Durbin III, 34, of Kincaid, died at 2:00 p.m., Monday, April 11, 2016, in his residence.


Daniel was born on May 25, 1981, the son of Daniel Durbin, Jr. and Barbara Mickey. He worked as a custodian for Rochester School District. Daniel enjoyed carpentry, camping, fishing, hunting and everything outdoors. Whether it was four-wheeling, gardening, or grilling beer-butt chicken, Daniel loved to be outside. His greatest treasures were his family and children, and his Labrador Retrievers, and he will be sadly missed.

Durbin II (fiancée, Dawn Frost) of Kincaid; mother, Barbara Mickey (husband Kevin), of Pana; his children, Kennedy and Miles Durbin, of Taylorville; sisters, Jennifer Durbin of Round Rock, TX; Vanessa Wiseman (husband Brett) of Taylorville; brother, Jacob Frost of Taylorville; former companion, Jessica Parrish of Taylorville; several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, including: Tharyn Wiseman, Jaxyn Frost, and Emari Nuss. Daniel is also survived by one grandmother, Alice Mickey, of Pana.
